Roy unfortunately could not make our trip but he sent a guide named Bernie in his place. I was a little worried at first but Bernie was a wonderful guide, he was knowledgeable, professional, just a nice guy. I must say that it has been my experience that Costa Rican nature guides are truly passionate about what they do and... More

We have just spent 2 weeks birding in Costa Rica with Johan Fernandez. Johan is in his thirties and has plenty of energy to keep up the pace so that we could see the maximum number of species on a 2 week trip. He has been leading birding tours for 11 years and is second to none in identifying different... More

We had a chaotic morning the day we were supposed to meet Roy and he patiently waited for us and was very laid back. He was patient and great with our kids, ages 7 and 10 and was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend him.

Roy is an expert and his gentle, kind and informative approach made our park experience very memorable. Our family (all ages) enjoyed the way that Roy unpacked all that the park had to offer including so much of the background to all of the things we saw and experienced. He is a professional who takes his role in being a... More

Manuel Antonio National Park was amazing! Without Roy though, we would of missed a lot. He gave us lots of great info on everything we saw…or should I say he spotted. He picked us up and at the end of the tour, we went to a great restaurant for fruit and fresh juice and ended up eating lunch there too.... More

My family is so fortunate to have experienced Manuel Antonio Park with Roy last week. His vast knowledge of wildlife, nature, and ecology, coupled with his quiet, patient demeanor enabled us to see, understand and appreciate all that Manuel Antonio had to offer. In addition to his extensive knowledge base, he went the extra distance by offering photos and videos... More

Because we were staying in Esterillos, and had booked a guided tour to Manuel Antonio with another excellent guide (Roy and he were great friends!), Roy suggested that he take us to Carara National Park and the crocodiles at Tarcoles. It was terrific having him as a private guide for the two of us, at not a very different price... More
